As I wrote about here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), yesterday was our Lord's Day!
Yes, I went to worship. But, I didn't get there, alone.
My granddaughter, A was with me!
On my way to worship, I stopped and picked her up. I must admit, I was grateful to have been with her, for it was a while since I had seen her.
When we arrived at the church building, A went running inside. And, many of my church family were so happy to see her!
For this, I was truly thankful.
Of course, when the children left the sanctuary, to attend Sunday school, A was excited. :) I must admit, before they left, she kept asking me over and over again, when she could go. Once it was time to go, she ran out and was smiling ear to ear. :)
I truly felt badly that I had forgotten to bring with me, something that had been given to me a couple of weeks ago.
It was a Christmas gift that was meant for A, but hadn't been given to her since she hadn't been able to attend Sunday school since the day of the Christmas play, just before Christmas. One of the teachers had given it to me, from her and her two (2) children who like A, so much.
After our worship service was over, I didn't drive A home.
Instead, I drove her to where I live. Her mom, my daughter B, had arranged to meet us there.
After I parked my van, A and I went inside the building. She was excited about being in the elevator with me. She pushed the necessary buttons.
We got the gift from within my apartment, and headed back down in the elevator.
Again, A pushed the necessary buttons. And, was excited being there with me. Just as I was excited being with her!
After all, she's only five (5) years old! And, she's so much fun to be with.
Thinking about how young A is, and how I love her, made me think of Psalm 127:3, "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
Just as we read in today's Bible verse, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward!
A is definitely the fruit of the womb. And, she is a reward, of His.
Especially, since A keeps telling me how she loves Jesus!
For this, I am grateful. And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
